I've been away.....

yep, I had a whole week away from home and work.  We travelled to Croatia for the first time and it is beautiful!  I don't want to bore you with all of my photos (at least not on this post), I'm just uploading the photos of our gorgeous villa first.
I paddled out on a kayak for this shot....just for you.
I love these steps, the huge (squeaky) large gate and the fabulous flowers. 
The water was just a stones throw away from the front door.
and the view from our room....utter bliss.
Who's for a tea party in the sun?  Actually, for most of the day it was too hot to sit here.
our villa was on the left and this small lane took you to Zaton Mali's centre.
My husband, sister, nieces and nephews were bitten badly by midges.  Luckily they didn't like mine or my children's blood..thank goodness. 
Most of the time was spent either lying in the sun, bathing in the warm, clear waters with snorkels or kayaking.

We did venture out to Dubrovnik, Ston and the Arboretum at Trsteno....more photos to follow shortly.

So its back to work for me but I have to confess that its taking me a while to get back into the swing of things....thats probably because one of my first jobs are the accounts!!!!

just let it take as long as poss to venture back into the thick of it- once you're there you won't escape again!
How brave to tackle accounts first thing.
Good luck, have completed mine (albeit overdue) so I can empathise

The holiday photos you've shown look gorgeous and look forward to more. Are the flowers hydrangeas?

I think you are right..they are hydrangeas. Accounts are 99% finished...hooray! What a pain it is. Never mind...I can get back to my sewing machine now. Lucyxx

Hi Lucy

Those whole area is stunning, I went there when I was 20. It was Yugoslavia then. Beautiful photos, the villa looks fabulous and those hydrangeas....
I would have been bitten, unfortunately mosquitos like my blood.

What bliss and very reminiscent of a holiday I spent on the Croatian Island of Hvar about 10 years ago.
I would love to return and your lovely photos really awoke old memories..

Eating lots of garlic is meant to repel mozzies... and people!
